Your Instagram feed is probably full of photos of pool floats that look like food, no? (Is that why they call it a feed?) Perhaps you’ve even posted a few of those pics yourself? We love an oversized slice of pizza, so we can’t blame you or anyone else. In fact, we can only encourage you to keep the kitsch going with some equally cute food-themed towels for when you’re on dry land.

There are tons of beach towels that make us think of the kitchen (the best place to think of!) and our current favorite is this giant watermelon towel.

When they say this towel is giant, they mean it! It’s 60 inches across, which means you and a friend can easily lay out on it together. (Or you know, take a seat and eat some watermelon.) And that fringe! We can’t even. Yes, at $68 the towel is expensive, but it seems like a small price to pay to have the kitschiest towel on the shoreline.
